configure jay's firewall to use dns in /etc/resolv.conf

jay's firewall's configuration scripts requires that i directly specify dns addresses for my isp; the problem is that the dns servers keep changing so i don't want to have to reconfigure the firewall every day or two

my /etc/resolv.conf always contains updated dns servers; how can i setup jay's firewall to just load the dns's in this file?

eg, the line states:
DNS = " "

i know there is a way to place /etc/resolv.conf with special syntax within those quotes to read the file, i just can't think of it...

thanx in advance!
